ATH-M50 Removable Cable Mod - Page 18

post #256 of 708

Also, the tools and parts are cheap. You can get a soldering iron, solder, 3.5mm jack, and a small bit of wire for under $25 together.

Ok, would you guys be able to list what parts I'll need to do this?  Pretty sure my dad has a soldering iron.  Also what cable do you recommend using?

Also I saw your mod, what did you use to put on the pads?

Oh shoot haha, I wasn't paying attention when I posted that I just saw the ear pad mod and didn't see they weren't m50s haha.  Thanks though.

Help! I cant get the ear cap part to close because my new plug is blocking it :( sound and everything works but the bump from the new jack is just too big!

Thats why everyone had to grind or hot knife or melt out that portion of the ear cup, to create clearance for the jack. Read through the thread, there are many posts about it and some pics too.

No help with doing an xlr version of this?  Could someone perhaps point me in a good direction to get some info about how to do that then?

? What help did you need? There is already a number of people who did the mini-XLR version of the mod with images and mart numbers in the thread. Other than that the process is the same.

So was it correct? Longer connection to the black wire, the gold one to the red wire and the shorter silver one to the green wire?

post #266 of 708

Really?  I'm only finding the one picture and no reference to which parts were specifically used or any wiring help, and I've searched, both on HF specifically and just as a general Google search. 

 

I posted my specific questions a couple pages back.

Inside of mine. I hope this is useful to someone, even with the silicon tape covering the jack..

Huh, and no one is noticing a change in sound after removing that chunk out of the driver housing huh?

These are the parts I currently have lined up.

I'm pretty sure those are the connectors I need, but I'm trying to nail down what cable would be best.  I see a lot of people using 4 conductor cable for this type of application, and I'm not quite sure why.  Could someone point me to the correct cable at Redco to buy for this application please?
